In 2007 we purchased a motor home and began a life of frequent travel in retirement.  We made a month-long trip to West Virginia in 2007 and spent five months on the road in 2008 going to and from Alaska.  In 2009 we spent another five months traveling to Missouri and then Maine and New England.  Since then we've done the Pacific Northwest, the Carolinas, California and the Gulf Coast.  We've had a ball and we're sure others are looking forward to doing the same thing.  This series of books passes along what we have learned, and communicates some of the fun we have had.

My wife and I had long dreamed of traveling to Alaska. I retired in 2006, we purchased a motor home in 2007, and in 2008 we made our dream come true. You can too! This book recounts our 5-month long, 8,700-mile trip from Milwaukee to Fairbanks and back in day-by-day detail. 

It tells of the amazing sights we saw and the surprises we found, both positive and negative. It includes several humorous tales of the road and describes some mistakes we made and things we wish we had done better. It is, in summary, the book I wish I had been able to read before we left home. 

The book provides maps that show where we went and includes over 230 full color photographs of our journey. It discusses the preparations we made and discloses not only our budget for the trip, but the amounts we actually spent and what we spent them on. And at the back, it lists the places we went and the campgrounds we used together with available addresses, phone numbers, websites and geo coordinates.

I traveled extensively when I was working but, like many road warriors, never got to see anything but airports and conference rooms.  So, after I retired, my wife and I bought a motor home and began a series of extensive trips.  

This book recounts our 2009 travels: a short one-month trip through central Missouri and a much longer trip through New York and New England and then down the east coast to Washington DC, with special emphasis on Maine.  It tells of the sights we saw and the surprises we found, both positive and negative. It includes several humorous tales of the road and describes some mistakes we made and things we wish we had done better. 

The book provides maps that show where we went and includes over 160 full color photographs of our journey. It discusses the preparations we made and discloses not only our budget for the trip, but the amounts we actually spent and what we spent them on. And at the back, it lists the places we went and the campgrounds we used together with available addresses, phone numbers, websites and geo coordinates.

This book recounts our 2017 travels from Wisconsin east through Virginia across the Great Plains to the Canadian Rockies and Banff.   Our relatively unusual and lengthy trip was occasioned by our fiftieth wedding anniversary and a desire to celebrate it in Wisconsin, the fact that we had not previously toured Virginia, and the fact that we had missed Banff in 2008 when we had traveled to Alaska.

Some of the gorgeous and delightful things we saw included Virginia's Natural Bridge, Colonial Williamsburg, Luray Caverns, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Glacier National Park and the Canadian national parks near the town of Banff.  Our visits to these sites and dozens of others are recounted in the book together with a detailed listing of more than sixty attractions we visited and the forty-five campsites where we stayed. The book includes seventy full color photos and a map that shows our route.
